EXPLANATIONS. 

1. When places other than Middlefield and Massachusetts are 
named in the original records, they are given in the printed 
copy. 

2. In all records the original spelling is followed. 

3. The various spellings of a name should be examined, as 
items about the same family or individual might be found under 
different spellings. 

4. Marriages and intentions of marriages are printed under 
the names of both parties. When both the marriage and inten- 
tion of marriage are recorded, only the marriage record is 
printed ; and where a marriage appears without the intention 
recorded, it is designated with an asterisk. 

5. Additional information which does not appear in the origi- 
nal text of an item, i.e. any explanation, query, inference, or, 
difference shown in other entries of th6 record, is bracketed 
Parentheses are used only when they occur in the original text. 
or to separate clauses found there — such as the birthplace of 
parents, in late marriage records.
